The Sundance Suck

What effect do the people in LA who go to Sundance have on the LA they leave behind? This weekend, Fishbowl noticed certain interesting temporary shifts in LA population density patterns:

Barney’s, Beverly Hills: Virtually empty
Nate & Al’s, Beverly Hills: Very crowded
The Coffee Table, Silver Lake: Somewhat busy, but fewer dudes-with-laptops
The Laundry Room in My Building: Mobbed

Surprisingly mixed results. Anyone been to Doughboy’s today?
